We UU’s may disagree about many issues, but one thing we do agree on is the Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles, as stated in Article II of the Bylaws and Rules of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
Chalica is a week-long celebration of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. The holiday first emerged in 2005 out of a wish to have a holiday organized around Unitarian Universalist values. It begins on the first Monday in December and lasts seven days. Each day, a chalice is lit, and the day is spent reflecting on the meaning of that day’s principle and doing a good deed that honors that principle. Not all Unitarian Universalists celebrate Chalica, but it has a growing following. There is a Chalice Facebook page, blog, and many Chalica-themed videos on YouTube.
This year Chalica starts on Monday, December 6 and concludes the following Sunday, December 12th. On Sunday seven of our own will be sharing a principle and its meaning for them.
Everyone who is on the church email list can expect receiving an email each day during Chalica as a reminder not only of our seven principles but as an invitation to think of a way you can celebrate each principle in action.
